Communicating with Our Stakeholders
DPR’s advisory committees:
- Members of the
Agricultural Pest Control Advisory Committee
represent agricultural pest control advisers, applicators and dealers, and pesticide makers. They advise
the Department on all matters concerning licensing and certification, educational requirements, study
materials and examinations to ensure that pest control is safely done by competent and responsible
individuals and businesses.
The Pest Management Advisory Committee
(PMAC) advises the Department on a wide range of regulatory issues, and plays a key role in evaluating and
recommending recipients for pest management grants. Its membership is drawn from a number of stakeholder
groups, including industry, academia, and public interest organizations.
Pesticide Registration and Evaluation Committee
(PREC) brings together representatives of all public agencies whose activities or resources may be affected
by the use of pesticides. The purpose of this interagency body is to advise DPR on regulatory development
and reform initiatives.
- The School Integrated Pest
Management (IPM) Advisory Group provides input to the department on implementing the Healthy
Schools Act of 2000 through our programs to help school districts establish IPM policies and programs.
Participants are from key school organizations and other interested groups including industry, academia, and
public interest organizations.
